What do we offer at SSU? Students may earn a German minor or an interdisciplinary major in German Cultural Studies. Or they may simply add two semesters of language study to boost graduate school and job applications! Being able to communicate in German and having a solid foundation in German history and culture enhances the study of other fields, such as history, political science, global studies, music, art history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and other disciplines.

What is studying German worth? It might be more than you think!

Tutor: Lydia Bobb

Hey there! My name is Lydia B.(pronouns: she/her/hers) and I am an international student from Germany spending one semester at SSU! I am currently working on my Bachelor of Education in Germany with the subjects German and English (technically for high-school students, but I am sure I will get the hang of it!) and a special focus on language and literature in both of these languages. In case you have any questions regarding the German courses at SSU-content or language related–I will be very happy to help you! Just let me know what you need help with beforehand so I can make sure that you get the most out of your time! Looking forward to meeting you!
